Tutors can choose from existing challenges created by experienced ASDAN practitioners, or write and submit their own.
Challenges are designed to structure learning and demonstrate achievement in a range of curriculum areas. Learners work through their chosen challenges and collect evidence of their achievements in a portfolio.
Centres can claim certification from ASDAN to reward learners' achievements. There is also the option of downloading a simple statement of achievement after each completed challenge to reward small steps of progress.
Challenges take 10, 20 or 30 notional learning hours to complete. There is a bank of challenges to choose from, divided into 27 curriculum areas covering topics including Communication, Mathematics, PSHE, Home Management, IT and Employability.
Tutors can write and upload their own challenges and there is guidance provided to help you do this. It costs £8.65 to submit each challenge for approval to be added to the bank.
For each delegate that attends the Lifeskills Challenge training, three free challenges can be submitted.
In order to download and start work on your chosen challenges, you must purchase registrations for your learners. Learner registration costs £17.30 per person.
This registration lasts for 12 months, during which time the learner can complete as many challenges as required. The price includes one certification opportunity, along with the option to download Statements of Achievement along the way.
There is also an opportunity to purchase a 'Registration Extension Fee' for £10 per learner registration. Each learner will therefore have a 2nd year of registration. This will mean that all challenges role over to the 2nd year and certification is also deferred to the 2nd year.
